Windows activation phone number

  s99Raj 17:52 20 Feb 2005

Anyone know the Windows (XP activation) freephone number from the UK?

The problem I'm having is that Windows keeps asking me to activate it, so I click YES and it says that Windows is already activated. So I click Next and it takes me back, asking me to activate it, and I kep gonig round in circles. If i say I don't want to activate it, the PC shuts down.

I thought I might try phoning Microsoft Activation line unless someone here can come up with a solution.

I don't know if this is a free number, I don't live in the UK. But I have it as 0870 241 1963

Sorry, but that's not it.
The one I'm looking for starts 0800 .........

Please can you post the "solution". The same question has come up a few times and I can't recall seeing a resolution.
